Watching a game in style...

The screen that we watched the game on....


Well yesterday was the end to Mexicos World Cup dream. We played Argentina and were left defeated, and will have to wait another 4 years for another shot at advancing past the round of 16. Now I won't bore everyone with my "I hate FIFA rules" right now, but I do. Instead, I will look forward to the rest of the tournament, and pray that FIFA changes some of it's ways. Like adding "replays" on certain plays. One can only dream.

Hubby and our friend lined up the other day at our VIP cines to buy tickets to watch yesterdays match. I don't know about other cities in Mexico, but Cancun has one VIP theatre that is amazing. I am talking lazy boy reclining seats, waiters, menu of non and alcoholic beverages, and real food. Heck, you can order sushi if you want.

My paps and I taking it all in.......

Hubbs ended up getting 5 tickets for us, and our friend bought 2 for himself and his gringa girlfriend. The game was being played in 3-D so we had to wear those all-too-stylish glasses. It was a first for me, and how different it was. I'm still not sure if I liked it, but the experience was great. How often does one get that experience? I had a 40 ft screen, was served my bevvies, and I laid back in my seat. The only thing that would have made it better? A win.... hahaha. Truth be told, I was ready for the loss.

Hubbs and I doing our best Kanye look!!!

Anyways, for anyone who visits Cancun I really do suggest taking in a movie at the VIPS. The only difference is that during a movie they will not continue taking orders, so order all that you want at the beginning of the show!!

I agree the VIP is the only way to go! I always catch a movie when I'm there. So sad for Mexico's loss!

I LOVE VIP!!! The recling seats... the swivel-tables... too bad my fiance thinks it's too expensive haha. Oh well, I usually convince him to go when one of my fave movies comes out.

VIP cinema! Yes! It's the best thing I have found in Reynosa along with a good band called the Los Rockers. I don't know if I can ever go to a regular cinema again. I took my gringo friends from Texas yesterday and they can't wait to go again.

WHAAATT!!! A soccer game in 3D?! I didn't think I could love Mexico anymore without actually going, but I'm pretty sure I do now.
